December 29, 2019

It's back! Again! A full day of wonderful, weird, and WTF music. Things start out great with some of the very best of 2019, we move into some great 'Mats music, spin some requests and suggestions, some of the recently released, exciting list of performers appearing at the Static Roots Festival 2020, and some female secret weapons. These marathons are best used as an outlet for weird stuff that I don't normally get to play on air, so we rocked out to some loud rock 'n' roll, had a bunch of whiskey (songs), listened to some namedropper songs, got into some hip-hop, some soul, and got into the time machine and revisited some really old guilty pleasures. 12 hours of fun and great music!

Episode #817

Today's show is full of great, classic Christmas songs that definitely do not suck. We also threw in a few non-holiday requests just for fun. From us here at Tell the Band to Go Home, we wish all of our listeners, supporters, and friends, a very Merry Christmas (if that's your thing.) Even if it's not, we hope you find fun and fellowship with family and/or friends, as well as some great music, this time of year and always!

We probably won't be on next Sunday, but tune in Friday, December 27, 11 am to 11 pm for another Epic Mudge Marathon on UMFM! It's bound to get weird, but we plan on having a bunch of fun doing it.

Episode #813

Today, a sad farewell to one of the biggest influences on my musical development and one of the greatest live performers I've seen, the great John Mann of Spirit of the West. He lost his battle with Alzheimer's this week, but his spirit will live on through the great music that he made. We heard a lot of it on this episode, but there's so much more we couldn't get to. We also heard some great requests, talked about some exciting upcoming shows and spun some great new tunes.

November 1, 2019

It's the final day of Pledge-O-Rama 2019, and although we were thrilled to pass our initial goal last night, we're still working hard to earn your support which will help us to have another wonderful, prosperous year at UMFM! We rely on your donations to help us share great programming full of music, talk, and ideas that you won't hear on your normal radio.

Mudge in the Morning is an all-out effort to play some of the greatest underappreciated music in the world. This one was kind of like a Greatest Hits episode with stellar songs from across our spectrum designed to get you moving in the morning or whenever you tune in.

Even though Pledge-O-Rama is officially over, we can always use your help year-round! Consider making a donation to show that you support what we do: https://umfm.com/donate/

It's Pledge-O-Rama time once again! During Pledge-O-Rama, most hosts pull together some great incentives and some special episodes in an effort to raise donations for the station that we love. This year we need to replace our aging broadcast antenna, and it's a big job for a station that runs on a pretty tight budget, so we need a little help from our listeners!

Over the past 8 years, our good friend Gail Comfort has pulled together some of the best prizes and has worked hard to earn money for the station. This year she couldn't be with us and she wasn't very happy about it, so we put together a special Best Of show to boost her spirits and encourage people to remember her fine show when making their donations. In addition to some special statistics about which songs and artists she's played the most over her almost 9 years on the air, we talked to one of Gail's very favourite artists of all time, Lynn Miles!

There's still time to get your pledge in if you haven't had the chance already. You can read more about Pledge-O-Rama, our incentives, and make your pledge here: https://umfm.com/donate/pledgeorama

Episode #808

It's that time again when we turn the power over to you, the listener, as we ask for your help to make it possible for us to undertake an important, urgent project, replacing our broadcast antenna. We're asking for your donations to help us hit our goal so that we can complete this major project.

To help win you over, we've brought in some very special guests, Keri, Devin, Hazel, and Oscar Latimer, aka Leaf Rapids for some live music and conversation!

We've also got a whole bunch of great station incentives and a big pile of great CDs to give away, and the bulk of today's playlist was made up of selections from the albums we've got to give you as our thanks for your support!

There's still time to get your pledge in if you haven't had the chance already. You can read more about Pledge-O-Rama, our incentives, and make your pledge here: https://umfm.com/donate/pledgeorama

Episode #801

Last week we hit a milestone with our 800th episode, and that seemed like time to pause for some reflection. Every once in a while I start to wonder which artists, albums, and songs we play the most, so I do some highly unscientific calculations and come up with some interesting results. Today's show looks back at some of our most popular songs, albums, and artists.

Episode #796

This episode is another one of those timeless standby episodes that you might hear again sometime when I can't make it down to the station and I'm not able to provide something all-new. Hopefully, you'll agree that the music in here is so great that you won't mind revisiting this episode down the road.

This episode is called the Special Guest Spectacular because every song features some kind of special guest sitting in with another artist or band. Every once in a while you catch one artist singing backup or doing a duet or playing a solo on someone else's song, and this show collects a whole bunch of those. We also dip our toes into the extensive well of special guest appearances by the Canadian and American queens of such appearances!

Note: Unfortunately there are a few little audio hiccups that appeared during recording. Technical difficulties are entirely ours.

This episode celebrates our home city in song, with plenty of songs about and mentioning Winnipeg, as well as some of Winnipeg's finest artists, a look at some iconic Winnipeg locations, famous faces, and much more!

This is one of those timeless "standby" episodes that you may hear on UMFM again someday, but we're betting that it's so good that you won't mind a bit!
